Out of Tune!,
This review is from: Radio [CD 2] (Audio CD)
In a vain attempt to try and salvage a career going down in flames, Robbie Williams tries to nail the arch British camp style on the head, and spectacularly misses. Genre hopping is by no means a bad idea; I enjoy it more than anything. Provided it's done well and with sincerity, I welcome the notion that an artist can explore new musical avenues without critiscism. Unfortunately for Robbie, he doesn't have the talent or the voice to get away with it.
The lyrics are truly shameful;
'A comb in my 'fro'?
'He makes my engines go oh oh oh oh!'???????
Good GOD! Guy Chambers is sorely missed here, and Robbie is paying the price as he uncomfortably shimmies between unconvincing electro and his macho-man persona. If your lucky, you'll find an instrumental version of Radio which removes all evidence of the once great (or at-least marketable) Robbie Williams from this travesty, because I've never actually ever heard a song that gets worse with every listen.....until now!
